THE

Nelson-Galt

HOUSE

“I felt an instant connection upon my first school fieldtrip in the second grade. The living museum remains to be a constant source of inspiration in my design work. I will never forget my first visit to the blacksmithing shop or the sweet smell in the air of baking gingerbread cakes.”
